Just what do you do when you're bored at work?

As the landscaping season winds down in the Chicagoland area, the owner, a co-worker and I have found ourselves to be quite bored lately.

First we lit a bon-fire the best way we knew how.

Then we built a bar stool out of a seat from a Mack Dumptruck.

Just thought I'd share with the BenzWorld community.
THought you might get a kick out of it.

Yeah, but right now we're in a slow down time.

I'm from Chicago -- I bet it's slow. Plowing season may not start for many weeks. Even then it can't really keep you very busy...

RE: Just what do you do when you're bored at work?

Yeah, plowing season, pretty much the owner takes care of it, everyone else gets a different job for the winter. I might go back to working in the body shop I worked in last winter.

A SIDE NOTE - An good eye can spot my 300E in the fire picture.

When I'm bored, I surf the web. A lot.

RE: Just what do you do when you're bored at work?

Since I am self-employed, first, I fire myself for not concentrating on my work. Then, I beg my boss for my job back. After much pain and soul searching, I hire myself back, but with a warning that if it happens again, I will dock myself two weeks pay.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
